What to Measure
COSA indicators are designed to provide common definitions and consistent metrics to measure key social, economic, and environmental factors.
COSA Indicators can serve as proxies for complex phenomena that are difficult to perceive or measure in farming systems. They are calibrated to ensure comparability over time and across regions or countries.

COSA crafts tailored surveys to inform the specific indicators of each individual project.
